Gulls and Gals
The last day of our vacation, Saturday, I woke up before the sun because I remembered that THIS would be the day I would see Mattie. After that thought found its way into my head, I couldn't get back to sleep so I got up and prepared for the day. I remembered seeing a HUGE mess of gulls at the river and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get out and have some fun while the rest of the house was asleep. So I went and as I thought, the golden morning sun was as glorious as I had anticipated.
This was the only gull shot that came out halfway decent. And I took quite a few! ;-)
They were just too far away to do anything with if you didn't have a serious zoom or special lens. So I took pictures of the only other possible subjects...flowers and me.
Right before I left, this gull flew up and let me get surprisingly close before flying off. I was thankful to have gotten ONE keeper.
(Only ONE more set of vacation pictures! Next up will be of Mom's birthday party! I think after this, I will be more wordy and less picturey for a while. Especially given my dinosaur of a computer giving me timing issues...)
Have a wonderful day!
